Hitleristic approach. Can you show the link again?

Jetzt bleib im raum: Kurlykovs, AudioTrend, LumenMedia und AlumoAudio…

Just have a listen to the newest featured track, and then listen to AudioTrend’s tracks, starting with the oldest. :D

DAS WAR EIN BEFEHL!!!

Already have. Just go to Support. Case closed.

Perhaps it’s time Envato implemented its own version of automated ContentID.

Unfortunately, this can only pick up on direct duplications of music, rather than ‘sound-alikes’ as they’d have completely different digital fingerprints, regardless of similarity. These would still have to be checked by hand/ear.

To be fair, the reviewers do warn authors if their track is similar to another exisiting track on the marketplace and will make soft/hard rejections on that basis – but this is only if they’re aware of a similarity (there’s been a couple of instances where authors unintentionally/intentionally copied one of my top sellers, and were kind enough to contact me about it).

The reviewers can’t be expected to know, compare and police every single submission here, especially given the fact that corporate motivational music in abundance and is inherently similar in sound.

So really, in this situation the best thing we can do is just hit up Support and raise the issue with them first, rather than leave it to a potentially messy public flogging on the forums. Let’s keep it professional guys.

No- not directed at you Alumo- I was referring to the visiblity thing, Michikawa was talking about.

Ahh I get you, my apologies :)

Speaks volumes really, with Envato finally turning the faders down on us non exclusive authors. Don’t worry Envato, I can take a hint. ;)
But maybe you’re right Alumo, and this really is a hint for us to pack up and leave. If it is the case, rather than turn the dial down on sales and leave us in perpetual silence, why not be straight up with us and then we can weigh things up as a business decision?

Transparency is sadly something that doesn’t really exist in the world of selling on online marketplaces I’ve come to realise. We just have to muddle through and look at the data, as it’s all we’ve really got to go by.

Right now all I’m seeing is dwindling sales, the sudden demise of my popular files with no real signs of reason or improvement, which to me is a marker that something is up and a decision was probably made in an Envato coffee meeting at some point.

I totally share your feelings about being a part of a ‘family’ here (although I have always felt like the naughty teenage son smoking cigs behind the shed, as a non exclusive here). Decision making is so much harder, especially when we’ve become ‘institutionalised’ in the way we have, but as in any business that’s feeling the pinch, decisions have to be made in order to move on. I’m going through this right now in fact, so you’re not alone.

Really?

Why sound so shocked at following authors because they’re personal acquaintances or regular community members? As much as I enjoy listening to a constant stream of corporate motivational music, is does all tend to get a bit samey year after year.

It’s mostly about visibility. Link to your profile and your icon will be shown on another profile for some time. At least I believe this is the main reason.

Not always though. I usually follow another author when I’ve spoken to them personally or they’re regular faces within the forums/community. More a tip of my hat to them, rather than egotistical self promotion on their profile.

But the worrying thing is that we all actually believed him. So there must be an “air” of truth to this “joke”!
...... I did think have to think twice about it. ;)

Matt, I think you had to think twice about your answer too! :D

Or was that just your clever play on words? :)

Haha no clever play on words there. Just me fumbling around like an idiot! :bashful:

Yes, “many a true word spoken in jest” as the old English idiom goes. I have to admit though, when I first read Leon’s post, I did think have to think twice about it. ;)
